It's RTM -- release to manufacturing. This means that it's in it's final form, but there's a time lag to allow OEMs (basically people who sell machines preloaded with windows) to "enhance" their offerings with various additional software.

It's GA (general availability) tomorrow, which means that a) OEMs can ship it and b) you can but it from a shop.

Well, that's enough TLAs for one message ;)
